About Linda Wolf

Linda Ann (Hopkins) Wolf was born in Detroit, Michigan, and spent her early childhood enjoying the natural beauty of the forests, the native wildlife, and area surrounding Lake Michigan. Her parents moved the family to Southern California in the mid 1950s. She became intent on studying art while attending Glendora High School, and during her senior year she studied Color Theory and Design for two semesters on Saturdays at Chiounard Art Institute in Los Angeles. She also studied art at Marymount College,and Citrus College. She obtained a B.A.S.W. from California State University, Long Beach in 1968. Subsequently, she began a career in Public Social Services in Child Welfare Services in 1968 and worked for both Los Angeles County and Orange County in California until her retirement in 1994. She lived in Richland, Washington from 1981-1983. She started oil painting in the mid 1970's as a relief from her work, and her initial oil painting instructor, Joan Terhorst studied under William Alexander. Linda has also taken many oil painting workshops given by several well known artists over the years.

Since her move to the Coachella Valley in 2000, she has focused on painting in both oils and acrylics. After a lengthy visit to Australia in 2007, she developed a keen interest in Aboriginal Art, and has been exploring those methods of interpreting landscape art amid the backdrop of nature in the California Desert that surrounds her. She especially enjoys the terrain in the Coachella Valley and Joshua Tree National Park, as well as Anza Borrego Park. She is familiar with Sedona, Arizona and Tucson as well. ' I create my dab-original abstract acrylic landscapes by using vivid colors, shapes, line and form to describe spacial relationships. I use brushes, sticks and a lot of imagination to put a different spin on our desert sights. I sometimes use animal tracks in my patterns.' Linda also uses oil paint on canvas to illustrate conventional desert subjects. She does paint animals occasionally but enjoys painting landscapes the most. She paints primarily from photographs that she personally takes so that the colors are captured in the moment.

In past years, she has shown and sold her artwork as a member of the Cerritos Art Association, and the Mid-Columbia Basin Artists Association. Since 2006 she has been active in the Sun City Shadow Hills Creative Arts Club, Indio, CA. She has been a member of the La Quinta Art Foundation since 2001. She regularly displays her paintings as the Artist of the Month at the Sun City Shadow Hills, Montecito Clubhouse, their local art shows, and in the Pulte Sun City Shadow Hills, Sales Office, Indio. She has participated in the Southwest Arts Festival, Indio and Art Under the Umbrellas in Old Town, La Quinta, Indian Wells Arts Festival, and Desert Arts Festival in Palm Springs, CA She is scheduled to show her paintings in the Palm Desert Community Art Gallery from the end of August 2014 through November 7, 2014.
